Tour of California: Getting up to speed after slow, snowy start
After winter weather delayed the start of Tour of California, we heard on Monday’s news that Alaska’s cold weather had been trumped by temps at Lake Tahoe, where Tour officials wisely called off Sunday’s opening stage. We drove the road that day just minutes before the race was to start and though it seemed nice enough (albeit very cold and windy), by the time we got to the final 10km before Northstar, the roads were slick, snow was showering down and temperatures were plummeting.
And while hearty fans braved the conditions at the finish line to visit booths of their favorite brands and teams, it was clear that it wasn’t a day meant for racing bikes at top speeds. The blizzard was so intense that it delayed, relocated and shortened Monday’s stage as well, resulting in a soggy sprint in Sacramento. Christian Vande Velde’s Garmin Connect data from his Edge 800 provides a glimpse of how fast these guys go even in slightly better conditions, and here’s hoping that the rest of the week brings us better weather for an epic race.
